Visual Storytelling: Introduction to Video Presentations

You're Invited to Tell Your Story...

Each of the 10+ workshops we’ve given on Visual Storytelling with digital media have focused on a particular aspect of the overall process.  Basic Shots gave us the foundational vocabulary for framing our photos and videos; Composition, Angles, and Position (CAPS) extended that thinking into new dimensions; and Lightning in a Bottle looked at the creative and collaborative process behind telling magical stories with still and moving images.

Visual Storytelling - Introduction to Video Presentations will let each participant involve themselves directly in process of creating something amazing. In this case, the amazing something will be a video project that can be used in your classroom or school to enhance teaching and learning. Participants will come up with ideas, refine those ideas, and learn to efficiently work towards a storytelling goal that lives up to the magic in those dreamy first impressions.

In order to fully explore this process, this workshop is going to be presented a bit differently than we’ve done before.  Our goal is to give enough time to fully explore your ideas, and at the same time, capture the goodness that always comes from workshop participants and presenters.

Visual Storytelling - Introduction to Video Presentations will consist of three virtual / hosted meetings, a small mini-project to get the creative juices flowing, and a primary project where each participant will create their own classroom-ready video piece.

We humbly ask that participants commit to all three sessions and the completion of the projects.


  • We are limiting this new experience to 6-8 participants, so if you are interested, please sign up early.
  • Participation is open to teachers on all islands.
  • We ask that all participants have attended at least one other Visual Storytelling workshop or have some equivalent training (such as Hiki No, Hawaii Creative Media, etc.).
  • Each participant will be provided a Digital Media Video Production Kit including video and audio gear and a laptop for editing. (You can absolutely use your own equipment, as well!)
  • Participants will be required to upload their projects to an online space over the internet.
